nice and pleasurable trail

Easy and scenic trail. I enjoyed the lake views, swimming area and herons! I will be back to explore more areas of Hinckley.

this is an easy trail with few obstacles though not quite so easy that I'd recommend it for stroller use. The trail has some nice overlooks and gives a little taste of what songs of the other areas of the park have to offer, passing by the boat house, swimming area, all purpose trail and picnic areas. It only took me about an hour to hike the trail.

I found this particular trail less than adequately marked in comparison to the standards set by the other trails I've used in the Cleveland and Summit Metroparks. There are a number of connecting trails to other areas of the parks as well as a high number of off trail 'paths' that led me astray. However, being a short tail it is fairly easy to reorient back to the road.

I visited these back in 1999 when I was a seasonal employee at Hinkley Reservation. I returned with my dad & made a loop hike. We found most of the carvings & enjoyed the short hike. These are definitely worth the time & effort.

This is one of my favorites. I would rate it as moderate with a little incline here and there, some rocks and tree roots to watch out for. I like it that way. Took my two small dogs and they loved it. Great views of the lake, cranes, ducks, lilly pads, forestry etc.

A nice trail with interesting sculptures and carvings. very peaceful area.

Wonderful trail. Lots of options for distance and some nice hills. Very light traffic and plenty of shade. They also have some bathroom and water options at random spots and creeks/lakes for the dog!

Don’t be frightened by the amount of cars in the parking lot. Most people are using the picnic tables and the rest are walking above the cliffs. It’s beautiful and really peaceful. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Connects to other trails for an extended hike. Lots of shade!!

This trail had some exciting carvings in the sandstone and was fun and challenging for our young family of four!

We really liked it. There is a lot to see.

Beautiful! There was so much to look at.

Very pretty path!

The lake loop is fine but the area with the tall grass left my dog with at least 30 ticks. It is not worth it

Easy, mostly flat, mostly dirt and gravel loop although parts are paved. Some soft spots and mud patches but those were easily avoided. Trail is mostly shaded.

Nice trail...easy

Well maintained, fairly dry, some incline but not terrible. Starts at a lake, ends at a pond, and back. Shady and breezy in some sections makes for a nice day hike.

Mostly walking on a road and a bridle trail. Plenty of incline but confusing in parts.

A bit muddy, but small enough to make it fun! The only trail I have come across in CLE that is clearly marked. I will be coming here much more often, my new favorite trail!

This was an excellent hike for most of the time, but then we hit this area of the Bridal Trail that was very high grass. We got ticks all over us. It was a scary experience for me because I ended up with 3 in my hair! I have a lot of hair and had it up with a hat on, but they got to the top of my head! It has been rainy and I didn’t realize there would be an area of tall grasses. It started about 3 miles in for us. We should have turned around and made it an out-and-back.
